When you join a Learning Community you move into an environment where friendships are natural and campus more quickly feels like home.
Living with individuals who share your same interests, you enjoy unique resources and opportunities that help you succeed in your personal, professional and academic lives.
Each Learning Community is unique in its own way. Some communities are made up of students with the same major or in a specific program; others are centered around a common interest and include students from all majors. Each community also offers their own unique programs and experiences.
Thank you for taking an interest in joining one of our Learning Communities. We know there is a lot of decisions students have to make when they are getting ready for college life. Fill out this form and we will get you all the information you need to help you choose the community that is right for you.

As you prepare to select your room, please become familiar with some of the expectations that your Learning Community may have. If you have questions about these items, you should contact your Learning Director. Some of the items you will want to review are the following:
Some Learning Communities require a student to live in their Community's rooms to participate in the community. It is the responsibility of the student to place themselves into the Learning Community space during Learning Community room selection time. (See the Room Selection Tab on this page)
Learning Communities may require that your roommate be a member of the community to live within the designated Learning Community rooms. If this is the case, both students need to enroll in the Learning Community in order to be roommates.
If you have a roommate that is not enrolled in the community, you will need to contact the Office of Residence Life after you selected your room. You should place yourself in a room in the community space and then call the Office of Residence Life at 419-372-2011. The Office of Residence Life will then assign your confirmed roommate to the room.
Your roommate who is not a member of the community will need to confirm their room selection in May during their housing selection time.

There are two different housing selection process that takes place for Learning Community rooms. The two different processes are based on whether a student has been accepted before or after the Learning Community housing selection process has started.
Students who have been accepted into a Learning Community and made their $200 Initial Housing Payment, will receive an email with their housing selection day and time by noon, on Monday, March 5.
- Honors LC members who paid before Dec. 31 will be able to select their space starting at 2 p.m.
- Honors LC members who paid after Dec. 31 will be able to select their space starting at 3 p.m.
- LCs that allow roommate pull-ins will be able to select their space starting at 3 p.m.
- LCs that don’t allow roommate pull-ins will be able to select their space starting at 4 p.m.
The housing selection times are going to be based on the community a student is a member of. For example: all of the Arts Village rooms will open at the same time. Students will only be able to select rooms in the block that is assigned to the community. Meaning, even if a hall has multiple learning communities in it, the only rooms a student can select are ones that are available to their community.
Helpful Tip: Some communities allow roommate pull-ins, meaning you can choose to live with someone from the community or choose a roommate outside of the community. If the community doesn't, you must select a roommate who is a member of the community.
Students who are accepted after the Learning Community Housing Selection Process starts, will follow the below process:
- The student will receive a housing selection time 24-hours after they have been accepted into the community, as long as they have paid the $200 initial housing payment.
Please note: If they are accepted on a Friday, they will receive their email the following Monday.
